How do you catch up after so much time away?
What do you say when you think you may have found your voice again after it was lost?
Where do you start?
I can't, at this moment, even try to say all that has happened since I was last here.
And I don't know if it really matters - at least not now.
But here's what I do know,
I feel like the fog that trailed over and around me for the past 22 months has cleared.
I feel older and wiser
and, maybe, free.
I can't go back.
I can't change the past.
I can only, as I have all along,
let it become part of who I am
for better or worse.
What I also know,
is that it's ok.
I've come out the other side.
I'm ready for what's next.
